Three civilians from the same family, including a child, were killed on Wednesday in a mine explosion laid by Houthi militia south the port city of Hodeidah, western Yemen.

Local sources said the victims were riding on a motorcycle on a road linking Al Gah district to Al Khokha town south Hodeidah when a mine planted by Houthi rebels went off, leaving the three of them dead.

Since 2015, when they stormed Sana’a and staged a coup against the internationally recognized government, thousands of civilians have been reported to be killed, wounded, or maimed due to the mass mines and explosive devices the militia has randomly laid in large swaths of the country

Yesterday, the Yemeni Observatory for Documenting Mines Victims in Yemen said  Houthi mines killed 842 civilians, wounded 1486 others in Taiz alone.
